Our Wood Variations

Our Wood Variations

With each piece of furniture comes a gorgeous design and long-lasting finish with your choice of wood and stain. Each selection of wood will provide a much different look of elegance to match the decor of any room or office.

Our 100% hardwood pieces come in either Walnut, Cherry, Oak or Hard Maple with a variety of different stain options. While each wood boasts its own glory, why choose one over the other? Let’s find out.

 

Natural Black Walnut Blend

This blend is natural walnut using both the dark inner heartwood along with the lighter sapwood, revealing a gorgeous color combination. The central part of the tree is dark brown in color, while the outer layers of sapwood are a light off-white color.

Our talented artisans choose the boards that have both the sapwood as well as the heartwood grain of the walnut tree. The arrangement of the board is an important aspect of the crafting as it creates a unique natural flow of grain.

The black walnut is air dried which makes it less stressful on the wood itself, retaining its natural beauty of the color variation. By choosing this particular wood, it is usually finished with a clear and water-resistant finish to enhance its natural beauty without staining the wood.

 

Cherry Wood

Our Cherry Wood is naturally lighter red in color with a beautiful flowing grain. This gorgeous choice of wood is typically stained, offering our customers a variety of 15 different stains to choose from – from light red to dark red and everything in between. The elegant and rich looking result is very popular among our customers.

 

Red Oak

This choice of wood has a distinct, bold grain that is naturally light golden in color. Our customers choose from about 15 different stains for this hardwood which highlights the darker part of the grain. Red oak is about 15% heavier which is an important characteristic to note for our customers.

 

Hard Maple

Maple has a naturally light creamy color.  It displays a smooth flowing grain for a softer look.  It is very dense and needs to have the grain raised so that stain can penetrate into the wood.  The natural maple is an attractive accent when combined with darker woods like walnut or stained cherry. Create your own unique accent piece that is a one-of-a-kind, signed and dated.

Our Crafting Process

Our Crafting Process

We pride ourselves on our efficient and quality crafting process, bringing an artisan touch to every single piece that goes through our shop. We provide an unwavering commitment to delivering superior quality to all of our customers. Let’s walk through our crafting process to see how our talented craftsmen achieve those elegant styles for each piece.

 

Drying the Lumber

We slow dry the rough-sawn lumber in our kiln (which is heated using wood trimmings from projects) to reduce stress cracks that may occur in the grain if it dries too quickly.  Over time, the moisture in the wood can lead to loose joints, splits and even warping. Some lumber will even dry for several years before it is ready to be crafted into furniture. Our lumber is then stored in a climate-controlled building until it is needed to retain the integrity of the lumber.

Construction

Each and every piece has a craftsman that is chosen to handcraft that piece from start to finish. Our craftsman will review the plans, select the boards and processes the boards through our joiners, planers and table saws until the pieces are ready to be glued. The craftsman will then carefully cut, turn and sand each piece to the exact customer specifications. Each table leg and bed finial is then individually hand turned on a lathe. Precise hand sanding throughout the assembly process ensures proper fit and finish.

Finishing

After the piece of furniture is assembled, it is taken to the staining station where the craftsmen will hand rub the color-specified stain into the wood. After the stain has thoroughly dried, the piece will be taken into the dust-filtering spray booth where two coats of a premium-quality clear, water-resistant finish are applied to the entire piece to protect it from moisture. The first coat of finish is dried and sanded and after the second coat, the piece is closely inspected for smoothness and coverage.

Final Inspection

Each piece is very carefully inspected to make sure it exceeds George’s Furniture quality standards. The furniture is then dated and signed by the craftsmen to show pride in the artisanship of the piece.

Explore The Benefits of Choosing Hardwood Furniture

Explore The Benefits of Choosing Hardwood Furniture

At George’s Furniture, every piece of furniture is made from high-quality hardwood and is crafted from start to finish by one of our highly-skilled craftsmen. The use of hardwood for our furniture is especially crucial for our business as it ensures longevity and durability for each and every customer for years to come. Hardwood is the optimal material for our furniture here at George’s.

Throughout Pennsylvania, there is a plethora of renewable hardwood lumber that can be turned into high-value finished products with very low environmental impact. Non-renewable resources like steel, plastic, aluminum and other metals have a much higher environmental impact than using renewable products like hardwood.

Not only is wood a sustainable and renewable resource but purchasing wood furniture from a locally-run and USA based company boosts the local economy and provides American jobs in the forest products industry.

Hardwood is also durable, natural, and draws people into the beauty of the real wood with its color variation and character.

With George’s, you will have a beautiful natural design that fits any room and will last for generations to come.

Constructing Sustainably With George’s Furniture

Constructing Sustainably With George’s Furniture

Here at George’s, we pride ourselves on being effective and resourceful in our business practices.  Each piece of custom furniture is built with ultimate quality and little waste. We utilize our wood for multiple purposes to reduce our waste output. The wood cutoffs from our table saws are used for the construction of our drawer interiors. The unusable wood is chipped up and used to dry the walnut wood in our wood drying kiln and heat our woodshop. Our mission is to have each piece be hand-crafted to your exact specifications all while being conscious craftsmen.

By investing in solid hardwood from George’s, you are investing in a renewable resource that ultimately is environmentally friendly and also helps protect our local forests. The PA lumber used in our furniture helps slow the spread of pests by reducing the risk of importing invasive species to our forests.
